Diversity & Inclusion at Siemens Healthineers
We see diversity as the inclusion and collaboration of different thinking, backgrounds, experiences, expertise, and individual qualities across all organizational levels.
Diversity is as much about ideas as it is people. It’s about enabling different ideas and approaches to thrive. It’s about tapping the creative potential of all our employees to be as diverse as our customers and the patients for whom they care.
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) and Diversity and Inclusion Councils offer ways for our employees to connect, collaborate, and act as catalysts for change. They can do this in a variety of ways:
- Expand professional networks through employee resource group membership.
- Develop and enhance leadership skills by taking on a diversity and inclusion leadership role.
- Leverage mentorship opportunities.
- Attend professional training to foster career development.
- Impact the business and learn new skills by participating in projects outside of normal job responsibilities.
- Support the local community through volunteerism.
- Contribute creative ideas to make coming to work fun, productive, and meaningful.
